Yukon has long had a reputation for being an easy place for film producers to work. We’re understandably proud of this. In fact, even today Yukon does not require film location permits! However land-use permits for certain activities may apply.

We are proud of our pristine, untouched wilderness and our thriving wildlife. We are also proud of our Northern way of life. Yukon residents enjoy a special connection to the land we call home. It’s why most of us came to live here, and why most of us stay. It’s always been that way. Yukon’s First Nation peoples have felt that connection for thousands of years and, at their core, feel a spiritual union with the land that has sustained them for generations.

Understandably, Yukoners want to protect our beautiful land for our children and future generations.

Film productions on location in Yukon have always acknowledged this and have recognised that while they are shooting, they become privileged stewards of the land and do their utmost to protect the environment while getting the job done.
